Confession: as happy as I am in this stage of my life, I can’t help but worry about the future. I think that’s common, right? Last week with attending a wedding and spending time with older cousins, those worries and doubts came in.
Will I get married? What if I don’t find someone? Will I have kids? Where will I work? What if I don’t find a job? I have no idea.
I know that I’m young, but I feel like the next 5-10 years are so stereotypically significant. Key word: stereotypically. Nowhere is there a handbook that says you have to fall in love and get married by a certain age. Nowhere does it say that you have to love your first job. Nowhere does it say that you have to “thrive” in this time of your life.
Things will happen when they happen and constantly waiting for the next thing or the next stage won’t do me any good.
Also, 5-10 years ago, I could never have predicted what my life would be like today. I remember worrying about so many things that seem completely insignificant now. I look back and realize how much I have changed and so many things that I could have never foreseen happening.
It’s hard to live in the moment. To live in your current stage of life. To not be concerned about the future. But I want to….I’m trying to. Trying to take each day for what it is and not always think about next year. Or at least, not worry about it. (I can’t help but think about it :))
As much as I want answers about the future, my life is pretty good now. I have faith that I will eventually end up where I’m supposed to be. The unknown it hard, but the wait will be worth it.
No questions, just thoughts.
